How to say "Leave me alone!" in Russian

There are a few ways to say leave me alone in Russian. Firstly, it depends on who you are talking to: whether it’s one or a few people and whether it’s a formal or informal situation. And secondly, there are a few options starting from mild ones and finishing with quite rude ones.

The most basic versions (mild ones):

Оста́вь меня́ в поко́е!
[as-táf’ mee-nyá f pa-kó-ye]
Leave me alone! (informal and singular)

Оста́вьте меня́ в поко́е!
[as-táf’-tye mee-nyá f pa-kó-ye]
Leave me alone! (formal or plural)

If somebody is annoying you, you can use a stronger phrase:

Отста́нь от меня́!
[at-stán’ at mee-nya]
Leave me alone! (informal and singular)

Отста́ньте от меня́!
[at-stán’-tye at mee-nya]
Leave me alone! (formal or plural)

And if it did not help and you need even stronger language, you can say:

Отвали́!
[at-va-lée]
Back off! Leave me alone!

Just remember that the last option is quite rude.
